About this Item

Publication of the Pipe Roll Society for the year 1946. Black original binding, gilt emblem on front cover, top corner bumped. In March 1209 England entered the second year of the Interdict laid on it by Innocent III. The continuance of the quarrel between king and Pope sharpened all the grievances felt against the English king by his enemies whether they were rival kings or envious subjects. The terse entries of the Pipe Roll conceal the bitterness and helpless anger which John's tight controls were rousing among his barons. The increasing habit of buying something from the king by the promise of wine or horses sometimes lends a false air of geniality to financial transactions. A recurrent theme of alms for the poor because the king had eaten meat on a Friday, the regular payments for the king's baths (a reference to gambling losses) recurrent payments for boots again remind the reader that the daily life of the court had its simple routines as well as its tense urgencies.
